I can perhaps shed some light on the golem/diver dichotomy. On Jeju, there are many small statues made from the island’s volcanic rock (kind of like Easter Island) of “grandfathers.”
Whereas traditionally, the women of Jeju have been fearless divers in the cold and treacherous water. They dive in search of shellfish, mostly.
What's really missing from that entry would be signs of which the author would approve. Did I miss one? "Don't do this" is not enough; "do this" would provide a goal.
"I'm gonna put a ball bat in my car, and if I ever see a guy (transgender individual) coming out of a bathroom that my granddaughter's in, I'm gonna use the ball bat on him...In the good old days, before 'she-males' existed, they just called such people perverts."
Justinian: Weird. I always figured the bathrooms were "Scotsmen" and "non-Scotsmen".
Thinking of some of the men's rooms I've seen/heard male friends talk about in terms of cleanliness... uh, I'm pretty happy with women's-only rooms.
If man-ness were really the unquestioned, unscrutinized default case, there would never be any discussion of what a real man would do. Since there is, it is not.
